PhilanthroFest is collaborating with Catalyst Miami to host the first in our ongoing series of Non-Profit Community Engagement Institutes on February 8, 2013, at the Miami Science Museum. The focus of these institutes is to provide non-profit organizations of all sizes with both on-line and off-line skills to reach out and connect with residents of their community in order to better promote their mission and enhance their organization.

The institute is an afternoon affair with several workshop sessions. Each session is 45 minutes long. A keynote presentation starts the day and we are closing out with time for networking and socializing.
